Understanding Contact Tips

Posted by Matthew Sciannella on Mar 10, 2017 9:58:05 AM

Contact tips are highly misunderstood components in a welding gun setup. Choosing the correct contact tip for your welding application and understanding how to keep it performing at its best are just as critical as anything else needed to produce a quality weld.

Properties of Metal

Posted by John Esposito on Mar 9, 2017 12:00:00 PM

It is very important to be familiar with the physical property of metals. It’s just as important to know the terms and measurements used to identify them, as well. There are three classifications of common properties – all of which are used to define metal. They are:

Air-cooled vs. Water-cooled MIG Guns

Let’s begin by understanding duty cycle. We all know what it is, but just for a quick refresh:  Duty cycle is a rating measurement of 10 minute increments using CO2 gas.  So, if we take a 350 amp gun as an example – that means at it’s maximum it can weld 10 minutes at 350 amps with a constant current using CO2 gas.

Impact of Torch Liners on Fabrication Downtime

Posted by Paul Pfingston on Feb 27, 2017 1:21:46 PM

In today’s environment it is absolutely critical to minimize downtime and operate in the most efficient manner. Reasons for downtime are many and varied, particularly in the welding fabrication field. Grounding problems, gas leaks, contaminated material, machinery malfunction and worn components represent a few of the many issues confronted. In MIG/MAG welding, one of the most frustrating is wire feed problems.

The Importance of Metal Surfacing

Posted by John Esposito on Feb 10, 2017 9:51:00 AM

First off, you might want to know what the heck surfacing is?  Surfacing is the process of rebuilding and/or protecting metals by adding metal alloys or ceramics.  These materials can be applied to a metal as either a powder or a solid.  Surfacing might seem like a needless, time-consuming task when you want to just grab your gun and weld, but it has some real advantages. Surfacing a part using a metal alloy or other material can:

3 Reasons to Use Fume Extraction Torches

Posted by Etienne Blouin on Jan 9, 2017 10:35:54 AM

Every welding project generates hazardous fumes and smoke that can be dangerous to welders if inhaled.  One way to improve the safety of welding torch operators is with fume extraction torches.  Our xFume™ Fume Extraction Torches offer efficient fume extraction through the torch itself.  Its unique design solutions make it the best option for welding fume extraction.  While there are multiple fume extraction options in the market, here are three things to consider when making your fume extraction torch selection.
